Message from the Director

Lees-McRae College is committed to the principle that an excellent liberal arts education is one of the best investments a family can make.

Today, our commitment to affordability has never been stronger. Oftentimes prospective students and their parents believe that attending a private college or out-of-state college is too expensive. At Lees-McRae we do not charge any additional fees to out-of-state students and many of our currently enrolled students will tell you that it is just as affordable to attend Lees-McRae College as to attend a public university.

Over 95% of Lees-McRae College students receive financial assistance. Only one form is needed to start the process after you have been admitted to Lees-McRae -- the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Complete the FAFSA online at and include the Lees-McRae College school code of 002939.

The Lees-McRae College Financial Aid Staff is dedicated to providing students and their families with friendly, efficient, and responsible financial services, while complying with all federal, state, and institutional policies. We are here to support you and to help you make an informed decision about investing in your education.
